Sausage Pepper Alfredo Recipe

Happy Tuesday!!! Hope y'all are having a wonderful day so far!! I’ve decided I want to share a recipe that I actually created myself! On a whim and kind of by accident. It has quickly climbed to the number 2 spot on my hubby’s favorite home cooked meals list! My meatloaf is his number 1!

Please forgive me as I did not take any photos of the meal! Regardless, it’s darn yummy!

What you will need for:

3 Johnsonville Chorizo Sausage Links
7 oz. dry pasta {doesn’t matter what kind, I use whole wheat of whatever is on hand, penne, rotini, etc.}
1 whole green bell pepper {sliced}
1 whole red bell pepper {sliced}
½ of an onion sliced

Sauce:

4 oz. cream cheese {I use fat free cream cheese in the block form}
¼ cup of milk {I use Organic Skim Milk}
1 tbsp. butter

Cut the casing off of the 3 sausage links and crumble sausage into pan. Cook until done.

While sausage is cooking, saute peppers and onions in separate pan. Also began to cook your pasta. Pasta should be done in about 10 minutes. Once peppers, onions and sausage are finished cooking combine into one pan.

While pasta is cooking mix, cream cheese, butter, and milk into a saute pan. Stir continuously until fully melted and it becomes a creamy sauce. Turn heat on low and let simmer. Be careful not to let it burn.

Once pasta is done, drain and add to pan with the sausage, peppers, and onions. Mix pasta and other ingredients together. Once mixed well, pour your cream cheese sauce over pasta. Mix all together to make sure everything is coated with the sauce.

Serves 4.

ENJOY!!!

I’ve been religiously using My Fitness Pal and was able to log in this recipe with the ingredients I use and found that it was only 349 calories per serving. I don’t really know “how much” was on my plate. I just split the sauce pan into 4’s and scooped out ¼ of it! I’d say it was probably a cup ½ .

If anyone tries this recipe please share with me how you like it and if you think it is horrible, I apologize in advance! We just happen to be HUGE fans of it!!! See y'all tomorrow for WILW!!!

Xoxo,
